Slated for completion in early 2023, Una Residences will be comprised of 135 spacious condominiums spanning 47 floors boasting unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay, and the Miami city skyline. Residences range from two-to-five bedrooms, measuring between 1,100 to 4,786 square feet (102.9 to 444 square meters) in size, with two penthouses available. The tower’s secluded waterfront location, situated in South Brickell area at 175 SE 25th Road, is only moments away from downtown Miami’s metropolitan city life, offering buyers the best of both worlds. Residences are priced from US$1.9 to $7.4 million, with penthouses up to US$21.6 million.

“Miami has become an international hub, and its standard of living – its happy lifestyle, warm weather, and lower taxes – continues to attract buyers from all over the world as well as domestically. Una Residences, designed by world-class architects, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, have been created for residents to fully benefit from Miami’s appealing characteristics with seamless indoor-outdoor living and sweeping views over Biscayne Bay. Una Residences represents one of the last opportunities to buy a new waterfront property in the established and highly-desirable Brickell enclave, one of Miami’s most prestigious neighborhoods,” said developer Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of OKO Group.

“Una’s subtly undulating surface and strong silhouette stands proud at the water’s edge. We drew inspiration from the elegant shape and opulent materials used in classic yacht design – particularly the beautifully lacquered wood, exposed materials, and stainless-steel connections found on the Italian-made yacht, the Riva. Carefully crafted and detailed and meticulously designed, it is elegant and relaxing. Its primary goal is to relate well and add to the beauty of Miami and the wonderful lifestyle this City is so well known for,” said Adrian Smith FAIA, Design Partner, AS+GG.

“Adhering to our philosophy that form follows performance, we saw the unique opportunity with Una to give the building a little bit of attitude in its design. It stands contrapposto, where one side of the building is holding its full weight and the other side is relaxed, looking at you. I like that attitude, it’s elegant, it’s very comfortable and it’s sophisticated,” added Gordon Gill FAIA, Co-Design Partner, AS+GG.

Una’s Residences have spacious layouts, expansive terraces, and private elevators for all units. Floor-to-ceiling windows welcome daylight into each open-plan space, while extra-wide terraces are carefully integrated into the great rooms and bedrooms. Sliding doors create an open connection to the main living spaces and a seamless flow between inside and outside, while drawing attention to the water. Within the residences, the expanse of windows is set against the warmth of natural materials. Every finish and surface are inspired by yacht design. 

Una Residences’ prime location, just steps away from Downtown Miami’s Brickell Avenue, provides residents a convenient central location. Some of Miami’s most popular destinations are just minutes away, including Coconut Grove, Downtown’s Arts & Entertainment District, the Miami Design District, the Wynwood Arts District, Midtown Miami, and Miami Beach.
